Hello fellow gearheads!

Today while i was at home watching tv my door bell rang, what a strange thing to happen i thought to myself, seeing as most if my friends were away on vacation but fair enough i opened the door. When i opened the door there stood before me a young man who claimed he was from DHL, he wanted my autograph in exchange for the packages he was carrying. I accepted and was granted my packages.

My cat was just as puzzled as i was at this event.


In the first box, which was big and flat was this.

But ofcourse! I thought to myself. It was the amazing Album by Fang Island i had ordered last week.

But...

What was in the other box?



I opened it...



Pulled out the smaller box...



What is that?


It is...


WAIT FOR IT!

Review:

So i've only had the pedal for about 4 hours and have not even nearly tried out everything this pedal is capable of but here is what i think of it so far.

Just looking at it you can see that it's a beautiful pedal, the artwork is really classy and well made, it's a pedal that you certainly isn't ashamed of. The build seems very sturdy and the wiring is a true piece of art, not to mention the great painting on the inside. It's all fit well into a MXR style casing, it definetly seems to be built to last.

Now, moving on to the sound department. This pedal is to say the absolute least, very versatile(emphasis on very). The first thing i wanted to do was dial in a Billy Corgan sort of gigantic fuzz tone, the Musket did it like it was the only thing it was meant for. It did it way better than any Big Muff i have ever tried, it has perfect balance between agression and calmness, just like Billys tone.

Then i tried to go for a more Jack White styled tone chich after some fiddling with the knobs it did like a charm. I cranked my Reverb and played Steady as she goes and whaddya know! The Musket prevails again.

I managed to get many tones between them but i have yet to find my special place on the pedal that is just for me and doesn't mimic anyone else.

Now i play many different genres but major in post punk and alternative rock(think Dinosaur Jr.) and i can tell this pedal will be perfect for me, i still have alot of pedals left until i consider my board complete but this is really a great start to find such a good base for my dirt sound.

I give the Musket Fuzz a 9/10 seeing as it did way more than i expected.

I can upload clips tomorrow, it's to late to record now.

I am somewhat considering one, they're one of the few Fuzzes I like.

Awesome paintjob of those things too.

IT was mostly due to me not being able to take pictures good(i can't feel my hands at all due to an accident when i was young so my hands shake extremely much) so i can't really be picky about the pictures i take. But i'll remember that in the future.

Anyways recording some clips.

How can you play guitar with stuffed hands? I broke my wrist and had to totally change my technique. After 20 years I had to almost completely relearn how to play guitar so I feel for you.

I have slight feeling on my fingertips so i can coordinate, the rest i do simply by intuition. I started to play after i lost my feeling in my hands so everyone told me it was impossible and i would never learn. I do everything pretty differently than most guitarists though, my bends are 100% done by wrist for example.
